Take Action Now - RRF Replenishment

March 1, 2022

Time is running out, so YOU must act now to ensure the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) is replenished in tandem with the federal government’s appropriations process that must be completed by March 11.  


65% of restaurants and bars in New York were shutout of this critical relief program that they desperately need when RRF funding was quickly exhausted (Nearly 200K eligible businesses were denied around the country!). So, Congress needs to step up and support them from further financial crisis.

Today, we’re holding a Day of Action with the Independent Restaurant Collation and groups around the nation to sound the alarm. WE NEED YOU TO TAKE 5 MINUTES AND TAKE ACTION NOW! AND…please forward this email to everyone you know in the hospitality industry and urge them to take action too!
